Title: MECHANICAL TILT FOR FULL DISPLAY MIRROR
Abstract:
A rearview mirror (10) for a vehicle (12) includes a housing (14) defining an interior cavity (16) and an actuation mechanism (18) coupled within the interior of the housing (14). The actuation mechanism (18) includes an arcuate first track (20) fixed with the housing (14). A mounting plate (26) is rotatably coupled within the cavity (16) of the housing (14) at a first end (28) thereof and defines a generally vertically arranged second track (30) alignable with the first track (20). A toggle unit (38) is coupled within the interior cavity (16) of the housing (14) and is rotatable about an axis (40) between first and second positions. A first arm (42) of the toggle unit (38) extends from the toggle unit (38) and defines an opening (44) therein alignable with the first track (20) and having two opposite, facing, cam surfaces (48) extending away each other. The actuation mechanism (18) further includes an actuation pin (52) extending through the first track (20), the second track (30), and the opening (44).
